At the October 7, 2015 Trustees Meeting the Trustees approved entering into an exclusive 5-year trash collection contract with Republic Waste, view the 2017 Republic Recycling and Waste Guide and Schedule (PDF).
The reasons were to reduce the number of trucks on our roads, make trash and recycling volumes reporting simpler, and, most importantly, to reduce the cost of collection service to our residents. The prices in the table reflect the per/month fee for each type of service. The contract will start on January 1, 2016.
If your collection day falls on or after New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving or Christmas Day, your collection day may be delayed until the following day.
The Township Service Department collects brush, (tree and bush trimmings, not grass clippings, loose leaves, or dirt), placed, un-bundled at the roadside, in front of single-family homes. Dates and other instructions about the collection will be published at appropriate times.
The Service Department along with the Kiwanis host a tire drop-off each fall. Dates and other instructions about this collection will be published at appropriate times.
Christmas Tree Collection
Each year the Service Department collects Christmas trees placed at the roadside. This occurs early in January. Exact dates are published well in advance. Christmas trees are turned into useful mulch. This saves space in landfills and saves residents from incurring extra charges on trash hauling bills.
